Property recovered included a laptop, numerous Christmas gifts and clothing, 2 watches, 4 wallets and contents, 2 purses and contents, 3 cell phones, several packs of cigarettes, cash, coin, Canadian tire money and other miscellaneous items.
Both youths have been charged with numerous counts of possession of property obtained by crime and held in custody for bail hearings.
Most of the thefts were from unlocked vehicles.
The North Bay Police wish to caution the public about leaving their vehicles unlocked regardless of the location. Valuables should never be left in unattended vehicles and when circumstances make it necessary then lock them in the trunk.
